Primary Care

Primary care is your first stop for healthcare. MaineHealth providers focus on your overall health and prevention. Providers who work in the area of primary care have the compassion and skill to care for you and the entire family. They make your health and your family’s health the first priority.

Quality care for every generation

From newborns to grandparents, all ages and every generation can receive quality health care. Our providers get to know patients as people. They focus on your overall health, not just on a single problem or illness. They order the tests you need, make sure you get the right prescriptions, and refer you to a specialist as needed. If you have a question about your healthcare, talk to your primary care provider first. Your primary care provider is your portal to high-quality healthcare.

Choosing the right primary care provider (PCP)

The primary care provider, also called the PCP, handles routine medical problems and may refer patients on to specialists. At MaineHealth, individuals and their families can choose the healthcare provider who is right for them. Each patient is an individual, with unique healthcare needs. You may choose a family doctor to take care of everyone – you, your spouse and children. Or, your kids may see a pediatrician from birth through age 21, while the adults go to an internist.
